> DESCRIPTION

Anne McGuire in person!

Filmforum first screened a film of Bay Area artist Anne McGuire with When I Was a Monster in 1997, when its multifaceted investigation of the feminine image, performance, and personal trauma resonated with its succinctness, humor, and lack of shame.  Her video pieces continue to grow in depth, marvels of brief artistic statements working with wit, media savvy, unabashed performances, and brilliant comments on modern society. We’re delighted to host her tonight, finally, for a full retrospective of her short works. She’s adding a couple of classic films by others that have had influence on her to round out the evening.

Videos by McGuire to be screened include: Museum (1989), Joe DiMaggio 1, 2, 3 (1991), The Telling (1996), The Waltons (1996), When I Was a Monster (1996), I Am Crazy and You're Not Wrong (1997), All Smiles and Sadness (1999), I Like Men (2000), After Wegman (2003), and Turntable (2005). The show closes with two 16mm masterpieces on love and loss selected by McGuire: Chronicles (1969) by Mike Kuchar and Princess of the Lake (1981) with animation by Giulio Gianini and drawings by Emanuele Luzzati.
